The Prosecutor narrated to the court that, the accused persons allegedly lured the girl and had an unlawful carnal knowledge with the victim at different times and threatened to kill her if she should disclose the incident to her parents or anybody.
He said the offence was contrary to section 282(1) of panel code law of Jigawa State.
Defence counsel, Bar. AG Wakil said the court lacks jurisdiction to entertain the case, therefore, requested the court to grant bail to the accused persons until the case is being transferred to an appropriate court.
Prosecuting counsel, who is also the State Attorney General, Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu, disputed the bail application made by the defence counsel.
Presiding Judge, Justice Musa Ubale, therefore, rejected the application filed by the defence counsel.
He, however, ordered for remand of the suspects at the correctional centre for two weeks.
The case was adjourned to Thursday, June 25, 2020, for further hearing.
